Remember when Ed Sheeran said his next album would be “more hip-hop like”? Well, he seems to be taking the Miley Cyrus total immersion approach: the singer just recorded new material with The Game and Rudimental, just a few weeks after hanging out with J. Cole and Mac Miller. On Tuesday (August 13), the West Coast rapper posted a photo from the studio along with the caption “Just made a CLASSIC record with the homie ‘Ed Sheeran’ a.k.a. @teddysphotos !!!!!!! One of the dopest sessions in my life.” (The Game was also photographed with Taylor Swift a while back, so this is only his second most random Instagram.)
That was followed yesterday by the above photo, posted by Sheeran, of the pair with Sheeran’s fellow Brits Rudimental. Sheeran added, “Another great day making music. This time me, the game and rudimental. Nuts.” Indeed.
No word yet on what these sessions are for, but we’re beyond intrigued to hear the results. Check out both photos below.
